Just got a news flash on my IPhone: Iran sees spike in coronavirus, 23 in parliament. A few days ago one of the president‚Äôs main officials died from it. As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man. David Wilkerson wrote a book in 1972 called,‚ÄĚThe Vision‚ÄĚ. I bought the book and as I was checking out, the Checker said this book will scare you to death. He had a vision as he was praying and felt the need to write a book and was advised not to. I am seeing things I would never have believed it would happen in my lifetime that his vision showed him in 1972. It has scriptures also to add to the truth of the vision. God will not be mocked, we will reap what we sow, later and more.
Perhaps every believer needs to read or sing Psalm 91, as this referred to plagues not coming nigh our dwelling, while of course taking appropriate precautions as necessary.
Perhaps instead of going down the Tridentine Traditional Catholic route, with regard to communion in one kind, the bread only for the people, with only the celebrant or presiding minister, partaking of the wine, perhaps those Protestant Evangelical churches that use the common cup, (which I actually prefer), may need to temporarily borrow the Free Church practice of using separate mini cups for communion, but drink the wine at the same time, as instructed by the minister.
Interestingly, certain dictatorial regimes may indeed use the Coronovirus as an excuse for permanently banning all religious gatherings, particularly the country where this all started!!! We will see.

COVID-19 spreads from person to person via droplets of infected fluid. These are passed on via touch, direct hand to hand contact or from contaminated surfaces, or when someone standing close to an infected person breathes in droplets that have been coughed or sneezed into the air. Experts say spending time focusing on hand hygiene can help you reduce your risk of picking up coronavirus, as well as any other number of infectious diseases....
